THESE LITTLE BOOKS BY ANGELA THIRKELL, WRITTEN AND PUBLISHED IN THE 30'S ARE A PLEASANT CHANGE FROM ALL THE BOOKS I NORMALLY READ, VARIED THOUGH THEY ARE, AND BY FAVOURITE AUTHORS OF TODAY. THEY ARE QUITE INFORMATIVE OF THE PERIOD THEY ARE WRITTEN, AND THE WAY OF LIFE. I AM GRADUALLY WORKING MY WAY THROUGH ALL THOSE AVAILABLE.
